Helicopter Ride


Harris and his wife Esther went to the State Fair every year, and every year Harris would say: "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter".

Esther always replied: "I know, Harris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars, and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

One year Esther and Harris went to the fair, and Harris said: "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."

Esther replied: "Harris, that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars".

Harris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed the pilot turned to Harris and said, "By golly I did everything that I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"

Harris replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Esther fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars".
